Gallery stores the album information in files in PHP serialized
form. It's very easy to access it from a perl script using
PHP::Serialization. In fact, I was starting to use this to tweak my
own gallery to my needs when I discovered kimdaba, which fully
deprecated my little hacks :-)

To make it short: what you want to achieve can probably be done
relatively easily with a perl script using an appropriate combination
of Image::Kimdaba and PHP::Serialization. I guess python would do as
well.

Just my 2 cents.

Good luck!
